Question: How do you get rid of the negative voice inside you? How do you coach others to also get rid of this negative voice?
You don’t get rid of anything, ever. In my teaching, the desire to get rid of and fix is one of the main obstacles to change. I teach people to welcome what is here, to understand what is here and to realize that that voice of harshness and negativity is a learned voice. It’s something they took on, and it’s a part of being human. But since it is also the biggest obstacle to any kind of true change, we have to learn how to separate from it. How to defend ourselves from its barrage of insults and how to treat ourselves with utmost kindness.
